Getting Geometric

Masculine cards are often something crafters shy away from, and it must be said that companies don't tend to provide enough masculine themed supplies, but I quite like making masculine cards and needed to refill my stash so I've been playing with geometry this weekend to make some.  Geometric shapes are always a safe bet for guy cards, particularly if you pair them with masculine colours.  I've been using the great new Trigonometry stamp set from AlteNew and their complimentary Shattered Triangle dies.

For this one I die cut the triangles from the shattered triangles set from white card and then coloured them ombre style in shades of green and layered them across a strip of navy card stock.  I used the Happy Birthday from the trigonometry stamp and repeat stamped it in parrot ink from their tropical forest cube pack.

Then for the second card I wanted to layer up the shapes - sometimes geometrical shapes force you into regimented lines, but you can go more random and make it work too.

I used different triangles from the trigonometry set and  just stamped a random pattern until I was happy with how it filled the card.  I used all the inks from two of the new colour packs Sweet Dreams (the blues) and Green Meadows (the greens).   The sentiment is from occasional labels from Mama Elephant in this instance - the bold background colour makes it pop right out amongst all the shapes.


It may be a difficult week in the store again - today we are faced with more snow and freezing fog with really poor visibility so we can barely see the end of the drive.  The forecast is better for the rest of the week we hope but there could be an issue with stock arriving as the airports have been closed so there will be lots of cargo waiting to get on flights.   This may well affect the MFT release on Wednesday as it is not yet in the UK.   We will do our best as always.  We have lots of orders in and are waiting for them to ship.  As always we will keep you updated on our Facebook page with the latest news so that's the best place to check each day for what has arrived and for "weather updates"

Catch you next week
